What To Expect

  • We will start the day by working on right-brain activities to help you to see better.  When you learn to see shapes and lines and tones, it will be easier to draw them.

  • Students will spend time doing blind-contour drawings and a modified contour drawing of your own footwear.

  • Finally, you will be offered dozens of high-quality photos to use as reference for your final sketch.

  • Students work at their own pace.

  • The workshop runs from 10 a.m. through to 4 p.m. with one hour off for lunch.
